Every morning before anyone has a chance to talk to me I talk to the one person who is with me daily, fights with me daily, grinds with me daily, is with me when no one else is, MYSELF. Yup, I talk to myself. I wake up, adjust my eyes and before the birds or anyone else begins to chirp, a million thoughts start going through my head.
Before anyone even has a chance to put their thoughts on me I already prepared myself for my day. Because I set the foundation for my day. So who better to talk to than myself?
My day starts with me, so I will start my day talking to me…
Here are a few thoughts I tell myself everyday:
- Be great! Don’t settle for being average or mediocre. BE GREAT!
- Be yourself! Do not sell your soul or compromise who you are for a like on social media or to be liked by anyone. Be who you are! Once you compromise who you are, you are now living a lie. Those who like you will, those who don’t wont. The goal is to be respected not liked.
- Everything is not always about you! (Sometimes just sometimes I wish it was though lol sshhh)
- Stop settling for things that are NOT good for you. I refuse to settle anymore. If I have to question the negative effects it has on me I wont do it or it has to go. Period!
- You don’t need to be everywhere, doing everything, all the time. Sit your ass down and stay focused. You are not missing out. Do what you gotta do now, so you can do what they can’t do later.
- Life is hard as hell! Try putting yourself into the shoes of someone other than your own sometimes. If you cant sympathize at least have some empathy.
- Today I will mind my own business. I do not care about he say she say drama or anyone elses personal business. I don’t care about why he/she did this or why he/she did that. I MIND MY OWN BUSINESS.
- If I can’t call you when my sons are hungry or I need a little help don’t question why I do what I do to make sure we have the things we need. Oh and if you cant ask your “Friend,” for help, is that really your “Friend?” Just saying…
- Never listen to or believe people when they tell you, you cant do something. You can do whatever you want, PERIOD!
- Stay determined, motivated, ambitious, driven, inspired.
Remember this: Be nice to yourself, talk positively to yourself! You set the foundation for your day! The day starts with you and it ends with you. So choose your words and your thoughts for yourself wisely.
Own your day, live and do on purpose with reason. You can! Most importantly, BE GREAT!
As I always say this is just my thought, my perspective because… I am, Just me, MsDraya!
